I am super happy to share this weeks episode with you. I talked to a long time friend, a mother and a doula. Lisa Suttchenko has been mothering for 18 years and I’ve known her almost that entire time. I’ve always been in awe of her mothering as she pours out so much love and generosity. She has boundaries and has weaved her own self care in through the years. She is also a doula, a doula is a non medical person who provides guidance and support to pregnant women, so she is literally helping women become mothers.
I think we all need mothering. I also can count on my fingers and toes women who have never birthed a child who mother me, my family, our community, one another. This idea of mother as someone who loves unconditionally and is there this constant. I have a lot of love and gratitude to those mothers too.
On this episode we talked about all of this. We chatted about self care for mothers, mothering our self, watching women becoming mothers and so much more.
Lisa it was an absolute treat to talk to you. Thank you so much for sharing your mothering journey with us!
